    It is very tuff to get this info from SQL 2000 where in 2005 is easy....
    Best option would be run the SQL profiler with Query plan option and parse the info....
    Note: it is not advisable to run this type of profile on production server all day...

    Not easy to find in SQL 2000 version, rather you hvae to go through the queries that are generated on your database to see their execution plans (manually) or even most complexed queries to fine tune them.
